. >>> and good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. a busy day here, secretary clinton final facing tough questions from senate republicans about benghazi. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you from your post. >> well, joining me now for our daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor and nbc's capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell, and david sanger. welcome, all. chris, we've seen these kinds of dramas before. this one was pretty tough. of course, the house side yet to come. how is hillary clinton, do you think, doing in terms of holding her own with a pretty tough brief? >> i think she's done quite well, and this is not an easy, as you point out, this is not an easy thing to do, andrea. i think it's fascinating. one democrat asks a question, then one republican.

state hillary clinton called her counterpart there in algeria, again, for the second day in a row, and expressed deep concerns about the operation moving forward. the safety and security of those that remain hostages. there's a serious concern about the way the algerians conducted that operation yesterday. many of the, officials here at the pentagon suggest that the primary objective of the algerians appeared to be to crush the militants and not necessarily to rescue the hostages, and the state department spokesman said american hostages still do remain and talking about confusing numbers that were anywhere from three to ten america americans. two americans managed to hide during the initial assault on that nat gas complex in algeria and were able to escape unharmed, but it's believed that at least three additional americans are still being held hostage there at that plant, and to become even more complicated, a regional news agency reported that the militants themselves claimed to have two americans held hostage and are demanding the delease of two convicted terrorists being held

was in some ways analogous to when hillary clinton as first lady in beijing when we were there back in the 1990s talked about women's rights being human rights and human rights being women's rights. >> inaugural speeches, there haven't been that many of them, so when you include language like president obama included, it sends a message not just today but going forward. it's the first time the word gay has ever been used in an inaugural address. my guess is it probably won't be the last time, but maybe it will. >> all the way in which he said, look, i support gay people getting married. it's been a sort of remarkable -- i do think it's both a political journey, but also a personal journey for him. >> mike duffy, now the really hard stuff on if there's going to be action on climated change, it's going to be very, very tough, indeed. guns something likely to happen. not everything that they want. the budget, the most immediate problem, tomorrow the house is voting on this extended debt ceiling and this is to avoid a confrontation in the short-term, but the large ers issues remain. >> tha
